NCH Downtown plans $32M two-story emergency department expansion

Naples Community Hospital wants to give you a more comfortable and modern health care experience by expanding their downtown Naples emergency department.

The downtown ER, which has not been updated in more than 20 years, treated 39,000 patients in 2017 alone.

That’s why the hospital wants a $32-million, two-story expansion.

The city’s design review board gave it approval Thursday morning, the first step to making it a reality.

The project expands emergency department beds from 34 to 50, to better accommodate more patients, especially during the busy season.

NCH says they will also design waiting rooms to be more comfortable for patients and their family members, by adding charging stations, mini office spaces and food options.

The hospital expects construction to begin next summer with a completion date in 2021.
